Star Trek Into Darkness (the new movie) and Star Trek The Wrath of Khan (the old one) occur in two separate time lines. Essentially they are two different Carol Marcuses fighting two different Khans. To see how the time lines split, watch Star Trek (2009).

Into Darkness contradicts prior Star Trek canon in disturbing ways and at the same time ends up lampooning elements of Wrath of Khan, a beloved Star Trek film. I'm a Star Trek "purist", but also a film fan in general, and I believe the fundamental problem with Into Darkness is that it makes no sense. (Case in point: Why would Khan hide his friends in ...

It would seem that the writers, Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof, were aware of Ricardo Montalban's original portrayal of Khan in The Original Series and The Wrath of Khan, but explicitly chose to depart from it. First of all, they recognized that Khan was a character of immense importance in the Star Trek canon: Lindelof said that Khan was ...

According to the film's official novelisation, the information coming from the probe "overloaded" the Universal Translator, rendering it incapable of working. The transmission's cacophony filled the bridge. "The universal translator-" Chitirih-Ra-Dreii said. He abruptly cursed again, using an epithet far up the hierarchy of Deltan curses. Deltans did not ...

No But we have come very close. The closest is probably Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home: KIRK: Thank you, ...for everything. Scotty, beam me up! Other notable instances of being very close include: Assignment: Earth (TOS) KIRK: Yes, I think we could say that. Two to beam up, Scotty. The Lorelei Signal (TAS) KIRK [OC]: Beam us up, Scotty. The ...

Probably not ... This link (found by @Richard) gives you a list of planned Star Trek film projects that never came to fruition, and none of them seems to feature Q. The more interesting question, I think for you is well, is why not? And we have an answer to this question from the guy who knows Q better than anyone! ... because he's not enough of a '...

The article at Memory-Beta says that the Son'a were extremely aggressive, and: "During their travels they visited many planets and took what materials they needed to improve their existence. They were also known to subjugate weaker species and make them their slaves, as in the case of the Tarlac and the Ellora in 2325." (It's not cited, but I imagine ...

From digging around online I found no official word, from show creators, that it was indeed based on the united nations symbol. However, I believe that its very reasonable to assume it was based or inspired by the UN. Star Trek Fleet Technical Manual Introduces a precursor to the federation symbols we see today. the Technical Manual while not truly canon,...

I'm not aware of any direct mentions in the film, but we can make a reasonable deduction based on Khan's past. From the ST:TOS episode "Space Seed": KIRK: [looking at a library picture of Khan on viewscreen] Name: Khan Noonien Singh. SPOCK: From 1992 through 1996, absolute ruler of more than a quarter of your world, from Asia through the Middle East. ...

The events in Wrath of Khan still happened, but in the future when Nero travels back in time to the day of Kirk's birth, his presence creates an alternate time line Spock explains it best...

This is a community wiki answer. Add at will: TOS: 'The Menagerie' - Spock is the subject of a court-martial TOS: 'Court Martial' - Kirk is put on trial for the manslaughter of Ben Finney TOS: 'Amok Time' - Spock, in extremis from the 7-year Vulcan biological imperative, is taken back to Vulcan and pressed into legal one-sided divorce proceedings ...

There's a footnoted line in David Gerrold's "The Trouble With Tribbles" (the book, not the script) addressing this: TEASER: INT. SHIP'S GALLEY--KIRK is talking to COOKIE, the ship's cook, and a colorful character he is...2 2 No, he isn't. The Enterprise doesn't have a ship's cook, only a mess officer to program the automatic machinery. (Source: ...

One never knows but I presume it was possible for the Son'a exiles to return to the original home world/empire of the Ba'ku. Even if that civilization had collapsed in the 300 years since the Ba'ku's departure it's plausible that remnants of their technology and expertise could have remained, perhaps in the hands of successor alien societies. Also, the Son'...

Due to the time period, we're talking about the maroon uniforms. Immediately post Wrath of Khan is still early enough that they haven't abandoned the undershirts - the uniform seen on the crew of the Bozeman (circa 2278) appears to be complete, while later uniforms seen on the crew of the Enterprise-C (circa 2344) and on Jack Crusher (circa 2349) omit the ...

JJ Abrams himself has expressed regrets about how Into Darkness played out. In this Buzzfeed interview But by the time we started shooting, and this was literally at the very beginning of the shoot, there were certain things I was unsure of. And I found this comment to be quite astute (emphasis mine) "I felt like, in a weird way, it was a little bit ...

There doesn't appear to be any relevant connection. The Changelings of the Gamma Quadrant were, until extremely recently, entirely unaware and totally disconnected from the Alpha and Beta Quadrants by more than 60,000 light years of rough terrain. It was only a quirk of fate that a wormhole appeared on the edge of their space that meant that they were able ...

In the book The Making of Star Trek by Stephen Whitfield and Gene Roddenberry pages 189-190, it says there is an area that crew members can prepare individual meals if they wish otherwise it is highly automatic. The food is then sent by mini turbo lifts to various areas around the ship.
